The negotiations also include the condition of the existing courthouse on Ashe Street and possible future uses for the building.

Mr Scannell says the development of the public realm space, which includes an outdoor events centre, has been delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Mr Scannell said the council is also in talks with An Garda Síochána to open up the area around Tralee Garda Station including removing the boundary wall to create a plaza.

He said this will improve the look of the area and create a strong link between the town centre and the Island of Geese site.
